Resource guide for planning, designing and implementing green infrastructure in parks

This Resource Guide for Planning, Designing and Implementing Green Infrastructure in Parks builds on the success of park and green infrastructure initiatives throughout the United States. It provides basic principles, inspiration, and ideas that can help planners, designers, and decision-makers...

Green infrastructure and flood management: Promoting cost-efficient flood risk reduction via...

This EEA report presents various options for reducing the risks of flooding with green infrastructure (GI) solutions in European floodplains and presents improved evidence for the financial justification of green investments. The findings are based on a number of case studies, whose evidence...

Exploring trade-offs among the multiple benefits of green-blue-grey infrastructure for urban...

Climate change is presenting one of the main challenges to our planet. In parallel, all regions of the world are projected to urbanise further. Consequently, sustainable development challenges will be increasingly concentrated in cities. A resulting impact is the increment of expected urban flood...

Integrating Green and Gray: Creating Next Generation Infrastructure

A new generation of infrastructure projects that harness the power of nature can help achieve development goals, including water security and climate resilience. In this report from the World Bank and World Resources Institute, both organizations are calling for green infrastructure, such as...

Integrating blue-green and grey infrastructure through an adaptation pathways approach to surface...

A range of solutions to future flood risk are available ranging from blue-green infrastructure (BGI) as commonly incorporated in sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to traditional grey infrastructure (e.g. pipe networks, storage tanks, flood walls). Each offers a different profile with respect to...

Key Factors Influencing Wider Adoption of Blue–Green Infrastructure in Developing Cities

Numerous fast-growing coastal cities in the Global South are exposed to coastal, fluvial and pluvial floods, as a consequence of decades-long rapid urbanisation and weak enforcement of planning regulations. Integrating Blue–Green Infrastructure (BGI) concepts into the development of the urban...

The Role of Green Infrastructure in Managing Urban Flood

There is increasing recognition of the potential of natural ecosystems to provide valuable services to urban areas. These ecosystem services may include flood control, water purification, slope stabilization, and erosion prevention. In addition, ecosystems may help to reduce urban temperatures,...

Evaluating natural infrastructure for flood management within the watersheds of selected global...

Cities are dependent on their upstream watersheds for storage and gradual release of water into river systems. These watersheds act as important flood mitigation infrastructure, providing an essential ecosystem service. In this paper we use metrics from the WaterWorld model to examine the flood...

The blue-green path to urban flood resilience

Achieving urban flood resilience at local, regional and national levels requires a transformative change in planning, design and implementation of urban water systems. Flood risk, wastewater and stormwater management should be re-envisaged and transformed to: ensure satisfactory service delivery...

Blue-Green cities for urban flood resilience

In her geosciences seminar delivered to Nottingham University, Emily O'Donnel explains the value of blue-green infrastructure (sometimes called SuDS) for reducing urban flood risk. She highlights the co-benefits these approaches bring beyond only reducing flood risk, provides examples from...

Nature-Based Solutions for Disaster Risk Management: Booklet (English)

Nature-based Solutions (NBS) that strategically conserve or restore nature to support conventionally built infrastructure systems (also referred to as gray infrastructure) can reduce disaster risk and produce more resilient and lower-cost services in developing countries. In the disaster risk...

Nature-Based Solutions for Disaster Risk Management (Vol. 2) : Fact Sheet (English)

Nature-based Solutions (NBS) that strategically conserve or restore nature to support conventionally built infrastructure systems (also referred to as gray infrastructure) can reduce disaster risk and produce more resilient and lower-cost services in developing countries. In the disaster risk...

Ready, set, rain! Urban flood resilience in Ontario

Spring floods are affecting many communities right now, but flooding worries won’t be over when water levels go down. Many communities, including Toronto, Windsor, Burlington, Brantford, Markham, and Thunder Bay have been impacted in recent years by a different kind of flooding, that has nothing...

Achieving Urban Flood Resilience in an Uncertain Future

Preliminary results of the UK Urban Flood Resilience research consortium are presented and discussed, with the work being conducted against a background of future uncertainties with respect to changing climate and increasing urbanization. Adopting a whole systems approach, key themes include...

Upscaling nature-based flood protection in Mozambique's cities: Knowledge Note

Mozambique is one of the countries most exposed to coastal and river flooding in Africa. It is also among the countries most vulnerable to current and future climate risk. The World Bank has been active in providing emergency recovery after hydrometeorological disasters in Mozambique and has...

Building back safer and greener: A guide to sound environmental practices for disaster recovery...

This guide outlines ways in which adverse environmental impacts can be avoided after disasters, and good practices can be promoted. It covers sectors including settlements and land use planning; building construction; waste management; energy; infrastructure; water, sanitation and hygiene;...

Building Back Safer and Greener: A Guide to Sound Environmental Practices for Disaster Recovery...

"This guide outlines many ways in which adverse environmental impacts can be avoided after disasters, and good practices can be promoted. It is written for government and non-government organization (NGO) technical staff including engineers and architects; humanitarian, development and...

Climate change and water: Finance needs to flood not drip

Prepared by individual countries ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015, Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are a powerful framework for setting out national climate action priorities. Ongoing revisions to NDCs guide national strategies to address the...

Adopting nature-based solutions for flood risk reduction in Latin America

Practical Action Latin America (Soluciones Prácticas), as part of the Zurich Flood Resilience Program, sought to collect evidence of examples using nature-based solutions for flood risk reduction in Latin America and convenes a platform for regional knowledge exchange and learning. This working...

WWF field series: Lessons learnt from 20 years of floodplain forest restoration in the Lower...

The last stretch of the Danube river – the Lower Danube – extends 1,000 km across Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine before it flows into the Black Sea. Numerous islands dot the river along this section. Decades of human modification of the natural landscape have left the islands, the...
